    Volkswagen's

    Discussion started by TuffGuy - Jan 7, 2005

    im buying a car in the near future.. i love VW and i can get a 98 jetta for 4000$ CAD with 144 000kms.. also a 97 golf with 195 000kms for 2500$ CAD

    now see people who have had volks either love them to death or hate the fuck outta them.. i have also heard they have mad electrical problems.. anyway.. what do you guys think?

    also, this is my first car.. and i dont really give a fuck what i push.. as long as it doesnt break ever 5 miniuts..and i want a car thats 4 cylinders cause i want it to be cheap on gas.. anyone know anything about hyundai's.. none of my friends can give me a straight answer about them other than "if you buy that your a fag" but i see a deal on a 98 elantra with 196 000kms for 1150$cad.

    help out a person who doesnt know shit about cars

    VW's are pretty much for enthusiasts (including myself)
    I regularly drive a 00 GLS, for the past year or so and it has had only one major problem (burning oil faster), other than that everything has been taken care of with warranty

    I wouldn't really suggest buying anything other than the TDI though, those things are the shit.

    I don't know much about VW's, but I do know that my cousin went to work as a mechanic for VW because he was told he would get the most work there. Make your own conclusions ;)

    I have a 2001 golf, I've had it for 3 1/2 years and put 82k miles on it. Other than the standard shit (tires, brakes, and an unusually high number of various lights) The only thing I've had to replace were some tie rod ends, a mass air flow sensor, and a brake light switch. Right now my turn signals are fucked up, sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. Not too bad considering I beat the shit out of it.

    I think the overwhelming response from 12 oz is gonna be, GOLF.

    german engineering gets the big thumbs up!

    avoid the hyundai at all costs. there is a very big reason why they have 10 year warranties, they break.

    any of the Japanese 4 bangers would be more than acceptable.

    I have a 04 Jetta, i recently got back, because i got into a wreak, but before i got my car,other friends advised me that they were good vechicles. I LOVE MY CAR.

    yeah if you have a choice, between an elantra, and a golf, choose the golf bro.

    yea i burn oil on my golf too.. buts its because of the way u drive. i always burn out and am racing. so all the pressure on the clutch is what wastes the oil...

    I don't have a VW but I got it's older cooler brother the Audi, and dude I LOVE IT.Get 1.8 treat it right,race suckas buy mad oil and be young. I've had a Hyundi and they're cheap to fix and they won't die, the body will fall off before the engine goes..........BUT after 250k things got shitty, the guy I sold my SCOUP too has pretty much replaced everything but the gas tank but he got my headaches.


    It's all in how you drive it and the way you take care of it....and the way it was treated before........

    my standard reply

    Subaru WRX or STi.

    Hell, the 2.5 RS is even pretty dope.
    all wheel drive is the way to go.

    im on my third vw,
    might be going onto my 4th

    owned 3 mk3 gti vr6's.
    not the best on gas at all.

    i suggest a TDI.

    but like it was mentioned,
    vw's are for enthusiasts who dont mind getting their hands dirty every once in a while.
